Today’s news is full of phrases like “fiscal cliff,” “debt ceiling,” and “tax changes.” With all the information flying around, often the most important question is not getting answered, “How does this affect me?”

Here is Robin Gordon, CPA, to the rescue! With over 30 years of experience in finance and accounting, she is able to explain what these terms mean for her clients and how they can work together to maintain maximum control on their money.

“Through my experience working for a big company along with owning my own accounting firm,” she states, “I understand how important it is to help my clients understand what is happening in today’s economy. At Cato Gordon and Company, we are able to blend personalized service with expertise for business owners, executives, independent professionals and individuals.”

She and her husband, Richard, have two children. One is in college while the other just started a graduate program in Foreign studies at Georgetown. For fun, she enjoys running, playing basketball, watching football and baseball, reading, shopping, travelling and hanging out with my family and friends.
